Could anyone tell me how long it can take for a spouse visa to be granted?
I lodged my application at Australia House,London.
I asked for my application to be considered for a permanant spouse visa.
I posted mine today and was informed 12 weeks

Hi LaLa am new to this site. I just got my passport back this morning with my permanent residency visa. Sent off my spouse application to Australia House about three or four weeks ago - was very quick. If you have children together you will get PR.
It's quick! See my timeline below.
I got temp visa.
application sent 14/04/08, payment taken 16/04/08, CO assigned 21/04/08, police & meds requested 21/04/08, police cert sent 06/05/08, meds sent 15/05/08, **VISA GRANTED 21/05/08**
Thanks for all your replies!
My timeline is;
26th May - front loaded application hand delivered
30th May - Assigned C/O.
I was told they are waiting on my medicals as they were sent to Sydney.
Asked to send more evidence for a PR visa.
2nd June - More evidence sent to C/O.
I haven't heard anything since then.....
I have been with my husband for nearly 3years and we have a 1 year old daughter.
My husband has to return to OZ by October 2008 so I'm just getting a little impatience now!!
I know exactly how you feel, we had our flights already booked to leave here on the 08th Oct so was a very anxious time waiting to hear. Good luck to you
i'm hoping for a speedy response we are going the 23rd oct and i'm sending mine off this week - it will be front loaded and its very detailed so hopefully should be straight forward....
